My Question or Issue
My spotify had a modern interface for the longest time. Then an update rolled out and my PC couldn't update it for some reason. My PC has harddrive space so that isn't the issue.
I uninstalled spotify completely and went to reinstall it with the regular link and it didn't work. I clicked the installer and nothing happened. So I installed the alternative link (http://download.spotify.com/Spotify%20Installer.exe) This worked and has installed but the interface looks COMPLETELY different (and older). Why is this, and is there a way to get the old interface back? thanks

Hey @legoche, welcome to Community!
That installer indeed installs an old version of Spotify (client version 0.9.xxx).
I'm pretty sure it's so old fails with updating itself as well, so I recommend trying this:
1. uninstall that client
2. make sure there are no Spotify folders left in %appdata% folders (roaming and local)
3. restart your computer
4. try installing from this link - it's a full installer.
(note: the new clients remove everything from %appdata% when uninstalling/reinstalling, but the old clients didn't do that.)
Let me know how it goes 🙂
